Make me

Make me

she said

clenched teeth

fists placed outside knuckles or you break a finger

go on then

make me

she’s been practicing her outrage

knelt too long in good manners and stiff skirts

if you come for me

I will respond in kind

they could see in her eyes

she had nothing to lose

it happens like that

they can take you apart piece by piece

until scar tissue fuses

you are a deformed version of yourself

scaled in defiance

so best you stand aside

she’s cutting her way through her own war path

if you play with matches

better know how to extinguish a fire

before it devours

just as goodness is inviolate

until natural order is reversed

then angels become feared

devils lose their advantage

over weak men who would

enslave the future to save themselves

not her

she is clad in the keloid of her injury

teeth clenched, eyes flaming

make me if you can

when there is no high road

to claim your justice

burn burn burn
